Man Utd Nabil Fekir transfer talks hint as Liverpool deal stalls

Danny Ings Daniel STurridge

The 24-year-old's agent said last week the deal could still be on, but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is ready to push the boat out to keep his club captain.

Fekir was all set to move to Anfield in a deal worth a reported €70m only for the Premier League club to pull out due to fears over a pre-existing knee injury.

Nabil is now on global duty with France at the World Cup where they are one of the favourites to win the tournament.

TeamTalk cites a report from Mundo Deportivo over the weekend that claimed Liverpool had submitted a stunning £158m [€180m] bid and Madrid were now considering the offer having knocked back two lower offers in the past.

Nabil Fekir will be offered a new contract if he rejects interest from Liverpool to stay at Lyon. Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all got to work in the transfer market - and we don't even know who's going to be managing us next season. "He was very serene", Aulas told Le Parisien.




While I think Mourinho might have had talks with the Frenchman, the sheer number of times Aulas has conducted interviews in the last week leads me to start wondering whether it's just a clever way to raise the price for Fekir.

It may come as no surprise that a more-than-decent-but-not-world class German player has been linked to Liverpool and Klopp - but Gotze does have history with the former Borussia Dortmund boss, playing under him at Signal Iduna Park. I gave the green light. At the moment, we are waiting for France and Nabil to have a fantastic World Cup.

"The transfer didn't happen because things took too long".

United could do with more creativity in their side and Fekir would certainly add that, and could fill in in a number of attacking midfield roles, out wide, or up front.
